1. Anaïs Mak, Hong Kong
The designer, a 2016 Generation T Lister, founded her feminine and minimalist clothing brand Anaïs Jourden in 2012. A graduate of the private fashion school Studio Berçot in Paris, Anaïs was a semi-finalist in the 2015 LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers and won Italian Vogue’s emerging designer award the same year. Her label is the only Hong Kong brand on the official Paris Fashion Week calendar.
She’s also off to a strong start in 2019—Ariana Grande rocked a metallic light blue bomber from Jourden in her 7 Rings music video, and this month Anaïs will reveal a line of uniforms she has designed for Hong Kong’s Rosewood Hotel.
